George Bodine paints landscapes, cityscapes, and people, working both in Plein air and the studio. Recently, he has been traveling extensively in Europe, and his paintings reflect his unique vision here and abroad. He paints almost exclusively in oils, many of which are from small, niche manufacturers. George often hand stretches Belgian linen sized with rabbit skin glue and primed with white lead, techniques dating from the 16th. century. Recently he is painting on sun-bleached Belgian linen, again primed with white lead, but glued to either sealed Birch board, or archival quality Artist’s board.
George Bodine’s goal is to produce work that will transcend time. His subject matter, and especially style or “voice” in painting, is unique. His varied subjects keep him from being labeled as coming from one type or genre of painting. Of his work, he says, “what inspires me is that which is within me, what it is I have to say. I believe painting is a language, and that we have to master our own voice in this foreign world.”
